Risotto with Sweet Pumpkin and Amaretti Biscuits | Regency Foods

Posted on

   It’s autumn, everything around us has something to do with the felling that the Christmas is coming, but first, well, we have Halloween almost here. This is why our first thought goes to a special recipe, an Italian Style recipe, that will combine Halloween and Christmas shades in one single dish: Risotto with Sweet Pumpkin and Amaretti Biscuits.

What you will need for your Risotto with Sweet Pumpkin and Amaretti Biscuits?

  • 300 g of Carnaroli Rice
  • 300 g of sweet pumpkin already prepared in little clean cubs you can also use frozen pumpkin)
  • 1 shallot finely cut (or a normal onion if you do not have a shallot around)
  • half glass of Italian White Cooking Wine 
  • 1.2 kg vegetable broth (you can buy one here, or you can easily prepare a completely organic broth by yourself )
  • 100 ml Olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 little cub of butter
  • 5/6 Amaretti Biscuits freshly pitted
  • saffron

How to prepare Risotto with Sweet Pumpkin and Amaretti Biscuits ?

First of all prepare your broth because you will need it during your entire cooking time, if you choose to use a Supermarket broth keep it hot during your preparation. The same rule you will have to respect for the organic homemade broth.

In a tall and professional pot (better a ceramic one) add 100 ml Olive Oil and the shallot finely cut. Wait until the shallot becomes slightly brown. After that add the Sweet Pumpkin and some broth and leave it until the pumpkin becomes soft. In the mean while prepare your Carnaroli rice. Put the rice in another pot and let it dry for a few seconds using low fire, then add the Italian White Cooking Wine one step at the time. In less than 3 or 4 minutes you will have your rice ready.

Add the rice to the other pot and let it on the fire for another 20 minutes. At the end you can also add some Grana Padano cheese. Add the butter and ¼ from your pitted Amaretti Biscuits.

And finally, the plating: add the rest of your pitted Amaretti Biscuits on the top of your dish among a small quantity of saffron.

Enjoy !!!
